    I had been meaning to check out this store and had a chance to stop in last Friday, down on Spring St. in NYC. I was thoroughly impressed with the place. Before I even get into the goods, I like their corporate goals, namely:

    1. non sweatshop labor
    2. made in the USA
    3. progressive day care/health insurance policies
    4. comittment to the environment

    It has been a quest for me to find great tshirts. I like them fitted, but not too fitted. I like them short, but not too short. I like them soft, but not too thin. I found the perfect tshirt in size M, fitted short sleeve model. I have no affiliation with the company, just thought id give them a quick review. My wife was with me, she was similarly impressed. She walked out of there with a pair of cotton drawstring pants, lots of really fitted t's, and much to my delight, a really sexy pair of cotton boyshort underwear.

    I like their products a lot. Their t-shirts are high quality and stylish. Perfect for custom silk-screens. That they have progressive business practices is a bonus. Their web-site; www.americanapparel.net

    I've heard nothing but good things about AA tees.

    Also, I believe that most of the smaller, 'underground' designers, who mainly produce screen-printed T's, use AA shirts.

    Even threadless.com advertises which of their shirts are made with American Apparel T's.

    Every single independent designer I have met uses American Apparel tees. Some of them even have a deal with AA to get them tagless so they can put their own tag on it.

    American Apparel is getting huge.

    the products are good-quality and affordable.
    the marketing is sexy and the ceo is charismatic.
    this is gonna be the new Benetton...
